Mario Super Sluggers
Baby DK can climb vines and chains, and even hang onto a swinging rope to use the momentum to move forward. If the player presses ↓ and then the swallowing button (either Y or B depending on control settings), Baby DK can do a shoulder charge that can break through dirt walls, some enemies, and tough blocks. Eggs thrown by Yoshi have an explosive effect – it is possible to defeat more than one enemy, activate clouds, or grab items just out of reach by a wall by the mini-blast. When Yoshi ground pounds on poles, the pole goes all the way down on the first try, relating to Baby DK's power.
In Mario Super Sluggers, he is an unlockable playable character. He has a good chemistry with Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Yoshi, Dixie Kong, Tiny Kong and Funky Kong. With the Kritters and King K. Rool he has a bad chemistry. His chemistry with Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong is neutral.
- It was unknown whether this was a younger modern day Donkey Kong or a younger Cranky Kong. However, considering he has a monogrammed bib similar to DK's tie, the current Donkey Kong and Mario are around the same age group and the striking resemblance to the current Donkey Kong, the former is the true intent and confirmed true.
- Baby Donkey Kong has a tail (albeit a tiny one) unlike his adult self as it seems to have disappeared, likely due to being half ape and half monkey.
- Real-life Gorillas reach the age to desire a child at 6–10 years old, and mature at 11-15 since they age 2-3 times faster than humans, by the time of Donkey Kong Jr. JR. would have already been older than Mario, and already old enough to have a son of his own (Baby Donkey Kong), that would later become modern Donkey Kong who would be a bit younger than Mario.
- Cranky Kong, Wrinkly Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Diddy Kong have conjoined eyes whereas modern Donkey Kong doesn't.
